My Lawnscaping Embossing Challenge Share

Hey everyone!
I just wanted to share with you my entry for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge! This week's prompt was embossing. I decided to use embossing powder for my card. Last week I saw an amazing card made by Chari Moss where she made an embossed midnight sky and I wanted to use her inspiration to make a card. You can find this card on the Lawn Fawn blog. I just love how my night time pumpkin patch card came out. It makes me so excited for fall and Halloween.
For this card I water coloured the background, using Tim Holtz Evergreen Bough and watercolour paper. I embossed the background with the Lawnfawn Starry Backdrop stamp and Platinum Gold embossing powder. I used back cardstock to die cut the grass using The Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Die. I wanted to enhance the night time scene. The super cute little cats are from the My Lucky Charm set. I added a bow to the little go cat with a bow from the Love N Breakfast stamp set. I also used the a Lawn Fawn stamp set So Thankful to get those cute pumpkins. I wanted it to look like the pumpkins were sitting in the cats laps, so I cut out their little feet and glued them to the front of the pumpkin. That is by far my favourite part of this card.
For the stamped images I used Copic Markers. The colours I used for the pumpkins were E59, E57, YR07, YR14, YR04, YR02. For the moon I used Y35 and added some wink of Stella to make it shine. For the cats I used W3 and W1, I added some flicks with the W3 to make it look like fur. The cat collars were coloured with Y35 and B29, as well as the bow. For the cats cheeks I used R20. Below are the stamps and dies used for this card.
I hope that you enjoyed this post featuring my cardfor the Lawnscaping Challenge. Here is the link if you are interested in participating thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I hope you have an awesome day. Xo
